About this project

Our Mission:
Everyone should be able to enjoy a great tasting, wholesome cookie from time to time. Many people with food allergies have to sacrifice flavor and texture in some of the foods they eat. Our mission is to bring back to the public the purity of old fashion recipes, while recognizing the importance of special dietary needs in what we do. With this mission in mind Deborah Kayes Cookies was created. All of Deborah Kayes Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies are made Gluten, Dairy, Wheat, and Corn Free.

Our History:
My wife (Deborah Kaye) and her mother made a cookie during the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas. This cookie was a favorite of everyone who came by to celebrate the holidays with our family. One day we thought to ourselves, I bet other people would like this cookie as well, so we began making these cookies on our days off out of our kitchen at home. My wife and I did this for a year and a half. We sold to area coffee shops and natural food stores. In the summer of 2009, we decided to put our all of our energy into growing this business. Our business has grown each year since we started. Testimonies from our customers continue to motivate us to want to get these cookies into more people’s hands.

Our Product:
Our product is an old fashioned oatmeal cookie made from all natural and organic ingredients. It is the only flourless cookie on the market; free of gluten, wheat and corn. Our oats are Certified Gluten Free. We support local businesses by buying our pecans and fresh organic eggs from nearby farms. Made with Sucranut sweetener, the cookie provides a lower glycemic index than most cookies on the market today. The cookies are made by hand, in our gluten free kitchen. Not only are they great by themselves, but are wonderful crumbled over fruit, dipped in ice cream or warmed in a toaster oven. In addition to just tasting great, these cookies support a market niche in the population focused on eating healthy as well as persons experiencing Celiac disease. By expanding the availability of the cookies to the corner grocery store, they will be available to more customers who want to make healthy choices for their families.

HOW CAN YOU HELP:
We have put our life savings and borrowings into this project. With your help, we will be able to purchase additional equipment for our commercial kitchen, enabling us to maintain our business growth in our own kitchen, controlling the quality which we pride ourselves on. Your contribution to our Kickstarter Campaign will help fund this need and therefore our mission to make available a nutritious and delicious cookie to many more people.
